baby pink and baby blue
Here's a few things I've been loving lately, and they all are pink&blue! The lipstick and wee bows are old, but they're also something I've taken to wearing again lately. I got the lipstick as a gift ages ago, and it's so tiny that you just have to love it for its cuteness. The colour, English Rose, is weirdly similar to my natural lip colour and the add of shimmer kind of makes it my go to spring lipstick.
All of the rings are recent purchases from Primark, and as I'm such a lil' rebel I do actually mix them up and wear them together, even though they're gold and silver. Shocking, I know. I also ran out of letter writing paper, and ordered these two and I love them! It really is finest quality. I don't get to write letters as often as I'd like to, but now when I do I have the loveliest paper:-) Lastly, I've been using the wild rose hand cream from The Body Shop, which is really good. I used to be really neurotic about applying hand cream and I still get a bit panicky if I feel like the moisture balance in my hands isn't right and there's no hand cream/lotion/moisturizer/anything. I know it sounds strange, but it's a thing. Really. So, anyway, I do appreciate a good hand cream and this does the job for me. It also smells a little of my childhood. Surely I'm not the only one who used to make their own perfumes? Mixing up different ingredients from nature with water in little bowls and letting them infuse overnight was one of the most fun things I did during summers and even had little shops with my friends. Rose perfume was obviously my favourite and this hand cream reminds me of it. Oh, the memories.
